Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s a natural pass catcher, at his best pulling in swing passes and heading upfield. He’s a natural in the screen game as well. His hands are good enough that Whitlow can line up in the slot.
  • Whitlow has the straight-line speed to outrun angles, and his flexibility allows him to turn the corner on the perimeter and stay near top speed as he does; he’s especially effective on fly sweeps.
  • Shows a surprising burst to beat linebackers to the edge. Can plant his foot in the ground and explode, showing better straight-line speed than expected.
  • An excellent blocker on the outside, he also adds value in the running game.
  • Whitlow aggressively finishes runs and consistently falls forward in a crowd. His low pad level and a bit of wiggle keep him from absorbing big hits.
  • His passing game skills are strong. He’s a natural hands catcher who turns upfield quickly in the screen game, and he shows a great feel for setting up wheel routes.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Whitlow might have some limitations as a pass protector, and Whitlow might have a tough time being anything more than a cut blocker in the backfield
  • Offers little in pass protection and poor technique cut blocking, fails to do more than slow down blitzers by laying down in front of them.
  • Whitlow really isn’t a guy who will create a lot of separation.
